LINK® Titanium–Cerclage Band according to Thabe
The Thabe titanium-cerclage band offers an effective and easy way to treat fractures of the femur. Compared to wire cerclage systems, the wide contact surface of the cerclage band distributes the pressure over a larger surface area and prevents cutting of the cerclage into the bone. The corrugated portion of the cerclage band preserves the periosteal blood supply. This is essential to the revitalization of fracture fragments or transplanted bone. Titanium is biocompatible, allowing the cerclage to remain in the body longer.
